MLA, Moncton East
Community leader and private sector executive Daniel Allain has been nominated as the Progressive Conservative candidate for the Moncton East electoral district in the upcoming election.
A Lewisville native, Allain wants to help the Greater Moncton Area achieve its full potential for the benefit of the whole community. Allain says he is ready to make the leap into provincial politics. In preparation for his announcement today, Allain met with community associations, boards and residents of the riding to hear their concerns.
“The message I heard was clear – the residents of Moncton East want a new voice in Fredericton” says Allain. “From these meetings it became clear to me that the people of the riding need to be heard. I will bring the ideas of the people of Moncton-East to Fredericton to make sure that our projects and priorities move forward.”
Allain’s top priority will be to make sure that our provincial government has the necessary tools to manage the current pandemic and steer our economy forward.
Local priorities for Allain include being a strong voice for seniors in our community. He will advocate for such projects like our Schools & Daycares , the Crossman Community Centre, Hospice Greater Moncton, SPCA, Food Depot Alimentaire, Irishtown Nature Park, Irishtown Community Centre, new road infrastructure on McLaughlin Rd / Route 480 in McQuade/Dundas, Bush-cutting initiatives on Rural Roads such as Cape Breton Rd. Scotch Settlement Rd and Weisner Rd. and the Lakeville Community Centre.
